Karl King was a monster when it came to writing circus marches and his Billboard March was one of his best. From a player’s standpoint, this will be challenging for the tempo should be pushed and the piece will require double tonguing to pull it off. Trumpets play marches well and this could be one of the best marches to do. Another of my favorites is the Liberty March which is also in our library.
